As mentioned in the chapter above hydro energy was the main renewable source in Albania in 2016 (estimated potential is 12 TWh). In addition the potential of Biomass (13 TWh/a), wind (11 TWh/a) and solar (33 MW) were also strongly represented.
Albania adopted its first National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) in January 2016. Albania hat intended to reach a target of 38 % of renewables in its final energy consumption by 2020. The 38 % should be reached through the following renewable shares:
- 25 % (small hydro power plants, wind, and photovoltaic)
- 10 % (biomass)
- 3 % (biofuels)
The energy strategy (2018-2030) set the objective of raising the share of renewables in primary consumption to 42% in 2030.
